There are over three thousand sweat glands in your feet, which is a prime source of moisture. Combine this fact with the reality that that your feet are enclosed a dark and warm environment when wearing shoes and socks, and you end up with a great breeding ground for bacteria. This can all lead to foot odor.
There are ways that a person can fight most foot odor without a lot of frustration or time just by using some simple at home remedies.
If you are still having foot odor problems try soaking your feet. Using regular black tea (not herbal tea), add some cool water and soak your feet in the solution. It is believed that the tannin in the tea will deodorize your feet by shutting down the sweat glands (temporarily). Just simply brew two tea bags in a pint of water for fifteen minutes, and then add two quarts of cool water to the tea mixture. Then soak your feet for a half hour.
After trying all the above methods and you are still having odor problems you may need to see a doctor. Ask your doctor about using Botox. Botox will temporarily shut down the sweat gland up to nine months.
